    Seems that when I got my BG that it already had the sleeve installed and I didn't find out until earlier this week when I pulled my trans to replace the clutch. Great thing about PDM Snout Sleeves is that they have a LIFETIME WARRANTY!!! If you need to replace your TO bearing and have the sleeve already installed you will need a bearing number 614147 for the BD/BG non-turbo and can get the bearing from PDM. They have great service and I highly recommend them. www.pdmusa1.com

    Re: Anyone with Clutch noise/judder/problems **READ**

    i got the snout kit and toyota t/o bearing kit on my car when i did the clutch recently but all is not good. it was perfect for the first couple weeks but now there is a loud squeak (sounds like a small burnout) when i start out from a dead stop in first, no noise in any other gears (unless im starting out in 2nd from a dead stop) no noise in reverse either and once the clutch is fully engaged it makes no noise. what could this be? it has baffled me and other "real" mechanics i have showed.
    if I wanted to lower my car I'd have gotten a GT!

    You used a toyota throwout bearing?

    My guess is that something has come undone and when the clutch is disengaged there is too much play on the bearing.

    it doesnt make noise when the clutch is disengaged, or when its engaged, it only makes a brief squeak when its in the process of engaging. in fact sometimes when on flat surfaces (rare as i live on a hill called Duluth MN) and let the clutch out very gingerly it wont make any noise.

    and the toyota t/o bearing came with the snout kit, as i now have a titanium sleeve over the trans snout.

    Sounds like theres no lube on the snout sleeve causing the bearing to squeak. I have the same kit on mine and I lubed the sleeve as well as the input shaft before sliding the bearing over the sleeve. I have no noises from the clutch area.

    thats what i originally thought the clutch kit i put on had all these warnings about not putting to much lube on the shaft (lol) so i didnt use enough i think.

    Its important to always keep your shaft lubricated!!

    Is this a problem I am likely to encounter on a 2,0 BH too? If so I will get one as I am at 80000 miles I have already found a new DMF very cheap just in case.
    Thanks guys.

    Re: Anyone with Clutch noise/judder/problems **READ**

    I'm going to toss one of these sets in my rebuild, but I've had a bit of confusion with this "fix". The OP fixed what seems to me to be a ISB issue with a sleeve and TOB? Does this sleeve quiet the common faulty ISB failure without replacing the ISB? Or, am I wrong in understanding that the noise when engaged is typically the internal bearing not the TOB?
